Is it true that Burton had to borrow a mobile phone from a protester to call the Gardai for help?

If it really was a hostage situation, and the protesters sent a ransom note to Enda saying: "The Tánaiste or the Water Charges!", I wouldn't put a lot of money on Joan's chances! :?

People get angry when they are lied to....Looks like the people have copped on that that they were lied to.

Joan is being harangued folks. She's always being harangued... I blame the sexist bullies meself.

"From the Dáil to the T*, Joan's ransom will be free.."

Hostage situation?! Lol, I suppose the next time a government minister's car gets stuck in traffic the Wing will be called out. :lol:

Perhaps all that really happened is that Joan got some clarity?

Mary Lou'll be delighted. :)

I don't think a car can be a hostage, really.

Or if it can I doubt it minds much.

I am sure another car could be arranged for Joan. Smuggle her out and let the protestors guard the other car for as long as they like.

People just have enough of the lies bluff and deceit from this government.
Noonan telling us recovery is spreading across the country, yes for the wealthy
For the poor, more sleeping on the streets than ever.The rich have had their fun
on the backs of the disabled, the sick and the weak.Is it any wonder John Bruton
would like more austerity.

Hmmm. Don't worry about it. Middle Ireland can see what is going on.

She eventually got out of the car and walked to another in the end, as far as I can tell.

You mean she actually had to walk from one car to another?

No one carried her?

There's a whiff of revolution in the air.

"However, Irish Socialist Party TD Paul Murphy, said the protest, which began shortly before Ms Burton attended the ceremony at noon, had been peaceful."
This is a taste of the Trotskyist utopia no doubt!
Paul Murphy, having been elected to represent the people might consider adopting a leadership role rather than that of an apologist but is suppose that is too much to expect.
I can only assume that this mob enjoy the self indulgence of discrediting their argument with their actions.
From what I have seen on Facebook it was a peaceful Protest . Well done to the Protesters for their excellent behavior despite the provocation from the Cops !

Irish water thugs assaulted a man on his own driveway while trespassing on his property in Dundalk this week. Will the OP start a thread about that and ask "is this ok??"

Doubt it somehow.

This is the new paradigm introduced by the Shinners and the hard left.
Only their voice matters and only their way can be allowed to prevail.
Democracy means nothing anymore.
The howling mob must be appeased at any cost.
You Irish dude?

Because, if you are, I'd suggest you read a biography of Michael Davitt before you go chucking words like "new " around.

Tánaiste
Tánaiste’s car blocked by water charge protesters in Tallaght
So this is now OK? :mad:
The last time I checked this type of behaviour was illegal and unacceptable or have I missed something?
10,000 factory workers were locked out by a farmers blockade.

It cost the meat factories €30 million.

That was illegal but AGS dis nothing. The peope here who whinge about the actions of water charge protesters were silent about the farmers.

Joan is a big girl and is used to horse play.

She has pushed people too far. Its time for her to defend the interests of ordinary peopl.

When this hapens the driver of the car should keep going, they wont be long getting out of the way. Do the Gaurds have a mounted horse unit, if they do they should be deployed in these situations, if they come up against these horses they wont be long getting out of the cars way

I'm sure Silvio will be here shortly to protest what the "Trots" did to his latest new party's leader. The Social Democrats musrt be "fairly bristling" at how their leader was treated.
